This is really an extension of Atom X. I find that sometimes students can get a little self-conscious when wandering aimlessly round a classroom until I call out a number. To avoid this, and to avoid the inevitable student huddle in the middle of the room, I give them moods or roles. Sometimes I try to make use of new vocab and tell them to move as if they have just won a million dollars or are all drunk, hungover, are all police officers, wealthy ladies out shopping, and -my all time favourite- as if they can smell something terrible.
Breaks the monotony and gives me a bit of a laugh.
